Kiddos and Homework...

Tell me about your homework routines.

With this being Phoenix's first year with hw, we're still figuring out a routine that works for us. 

Do you allow your kids to take short breaks? Can they finish in the morning if they are tired? Do they start as soon as they get home from school, or wait a while?

I have them do homework right after school while they're still in learning mode.  They don't do anything else until it's done.  Once they're done, they can go play or have a snack or whatever.

Phoenix has been doing his as soon as his dad gets home in the evenings, so far. I need DH to distract Ava so Ava doesn't distract Phoenix. Lol.

When they get home we get a snack and get right to homework.

They come in from school and sit down to do their homework, then they can have a snack and play.

Homework is to be done right after school. I allow my son to take short breaks because he really has a lot of homework for 2nd grade. If the first part of his homework takes him longer than 20 minutes to finish, he gets a break before he has to do the second half. It's only about 10 minutes though.
